I ordered stickers from Redbubble and from another company. Redbubble’s stickers actually stick to our water bottles and don’t come off when I [wash] the bottles. We weren’t so lucky with the other company. It’s a good product and my kids loved the images.

Can Redbubble Stickers Get Wet? (Water vs Vinyl Sticker)

Yes, your Redbubble stickers can definitely get wet. They’re made from water-resistant vinyl.

These stickers won’t smudge or unstick if you put water or oil on them. On the other hand, other kinds of paper stickers will get damaged if you put any kind of liquid on them.

When it comes to durability, Redbubble stickers are a great choice. Vinyl stickers last longer, look better, and stick to different surfaces better than most other kinds of stickers.

But does this mean Redbubble stickers are 100% waterproof? Let’s find out.

I ordered a glossy sticker for my girlfriend and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sticker. The size of the sticker matched the description perfectly. Application was easy and the sticker is holding up, with regular water dunking and splashes. very well!

The stickers are such great quality and they stick on very smoothly. I have had them on my water bottle for a while now and I find that they don’t budge when wet, which is fantastic…

Redbubble Stickers: Waterproof vs Water-Resistant

Redbubble stickers are not considered 100% waterproof, but they’re definitely water-resistant.

What’s the difference?

Waterproof means that the stickers are unaffected by water, no matter how much time they spend in the water.

A sticker classified as waterproof means that all parts of the sticker (including the adhesives and inks) have to be able to survive underwater for a long period of time.

So basically, a waterproof sticker will still look great and stick even when it’s underwater, for at least a few years.

On the other hand, a water-resistant sticker will resist the absorption of water, but not entirely.

Unfortunately, water-resistant stickers will eventually be ruined by water, which doesn’t make them the best choice if you want your stickers to constantly be in contact with water or moisture.

Vinyl, which Redbubble stickers are made of, is one of the most common materials for water-resistant stickers.

From my own personal experience, I assume that Redbubble also uses water-resistant adhesives (glue) and inks for their stickers since they don’t unstick or smudge even after a lot of contact with water.

I’ve had 4 stickers on a hydro flask for 18 months, and I’m constantly hand-washing it with dish soap and water. And you know what? They still look as good as new!

I’ve also put 3 transparent stickers on the back window of my car, and they’re still really stuck on there. The only thing is I think the sun will do more damage to the stickers than the rain. After a year outside, the colors of the stickers don’t seem as vibrant.

But that’s OK!

If my stickers fade to the point where they don’t look good, I’ll just replace them with new ones! It’s a good thing that vinyl stickers are easy to peel in one piece without leaving behind residue.

Love the stickers. They’re up on my car… and are easy to apply and durable. Recommended!

Sticker is awesome! The image is true to what was pictured on the site. Perfect for my car window to be displayed. I was so impressed with the quality of the transparent sticker I just purchased a few more for my snowboard.

Are Matte, Glossy & Transparent Redbubble Stickers Water-Resistant?

Yes. All Redbubble Stickers types are made from water-resistant vinyl. This means that the original Redbubble stickers, now called matte stickers, and their new glossy and transparent stickers are all water-resistant and super durable.

Glossy sticker looks great and is good at not washing of when my water bottle is washed

I love how they look and they look so fun and exciting on my cup! Great quality! Also, if they get wet just rinse them off and let them air dry and they will be sticky again when dry!

Kelsey J. on Jan 25, 2020 [RES]

All my stickers looked great. Colors were clear not faded. Have been lasting well on things that get wet/washed frequently.

Laina O. on Jan 19, 2021 [RES]
